Product Description

History demonstrates that wherever the cross is planted, the academy follows. But history alone cannot demonstrate why this is-and must be-the case. Green engages theology and philosophy to prove that the Christian vision of God, mankind, and the world provides the necessary precondition for and enduring foundation of meaningful intellectual life.

The Gospel and the Mind, deeply rooted in Augustinian and Reformed thought, shows that core principles of the West's Christian inheritance-such as creation and the importance of history, the centrality of a telos to all things, and the logos and the value of words-form the matrix of any promising and sustainable intellectual life.

More than a lament of the state of the evangelical mind or even an argument for the primacy of a Christian worldview, The Gospel and the Mind is a paradigm-shifting declaration that the life of the mind starts at the cross.

Author Bio

BRADLEY G. GREEN (PhD, Baylor University) is associate professor of Christian studies at Union University and co-founder of Augustine School, a Christian liberal arts school in Jackson, Tennessee. He has written numerous journal articles and reviews.

Endorsements

In this perceptive, thoughtful and very readable book, Brad Green shows that historic Christian witness is always accompanied by an intellectual awakening. Where the Christ life is authentically present, it proves to be intrinsically fruitful for education because to be a Christian, essentially, is to think as well as act in a new way. Anti-intellectualism, by contrast, is a sign that full obedience to the Gospel is lacking. Green provides a very helpful perspective on what has become a central issue for the Church in our time.
-David Lyle Jeffrey
Distinguished Professor of Literature and the Humanities, Baylor University

Green poses the question as to why is there so little written on the relationship between the cross and the life of the mind? His book is a riveting response to this lack. In an age when postmodernism seems to have reinforced the oft held notions that the human mind and knowledge are unimportant we need some guidance on the authentic Christian attitude to both. With a focus on creation and the cross, Green’s study looks at the relationship between biblical Christianity and the human intellectual endeavor. He argues with great clarity that the postmodern age is no longer interested in knowledge, and that only by a return to the Christian view of both past and future can the present have real meaning. This is a much needed and timely response to the contemporary Zeitgeist.
